The moonbat the left is swooning over who got elected to represent the Bronx and defeated an incumbent who outraised her 10-1.

The Democratic Party’s rising socialist icon – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has been on an intense media junket since her upset primary victory over establishment Democrat Joe Crowley this week – doing her darnedest to project her “girl from the Bronx” working-class image.

“Well, you know, the president is from Queens, and with all due respect — half of my district is from Queens — I don’t think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx,” Ocasio-Cortez told Stephen Colbert during an appearance on The Late Show.

The socialist phenom also told the Washington Post “I wasn’t born to a wealthy or powerful family — mother from Puerto Rico, dad from the South Bronx. I was born in a place where your Zip code determines your destiny.”

Except Ocasio-Cortez isn’t quite the blue-collar champion she’s branding herself as. Breitbart’s Josh Caplan is out with a “fact check” on the Democratic Socialist’s background – only to find she grew up in one of the richest counties in the United States.

Around the age of five, Alexandria’s architect father Sergio Ocasio moved the family from the “planned community” of Parkchester in the Bronx to a home in Yorktown Heights, a wealthy suburb in Westchester County. The New York Times describes her childhood home as “a modest two-bedroom house on a quiet street.” In a 1999 profile of the area, when Ocasio-Cortez would have been ten years old, the Times lauded Yorktown Heights’ “diversity of housing in a scenic setting” – complete with two golf courses.

The paper quoted Linda Cooper, the town supervisor, describing Yorktown as ”a folksy area where people can come, kick off their shoes, wander around, sit in a cafe, listen to a concert in the park, or go to the theater.”

Westchester County – which the Washington Post, in a glowing profile on Ocasio-Cortez, describes as only “middle class” – ranks #8 in the nation for the counties with the “highest average incomes among the wealthiest one percent of residents.” According to the Economic Policy Institute, the county’s average annual income of the top one percent is a staggering $4,326,049.

Yorktown Heights, specifically, offers a sharp contrast from Bronx living. According to, the town’s population is 81 percent white, and median household income is $96,413 – nearly double the average for both New York state and the nation, according to data from 2010-2014.

Not exactly Jenny from the block…

We wonder how long it will take Ocasio-Cortez to ride the “Democratic Socialist” wave until she’s firing off tweets from her third home and making $1 million, two years in a row, like Bernie Sanders.

Speaking of 1 million, that’s how many Venezuelan Bolivar it costs to buy a Cafe con Leche in Argentina now… (about .29c)

Then again, “Democratic Socialism” is apparently totally not that kind of socialism.

    “Working-class” Spic defeats old school “upper-class” Mick. The Socialist fur-hat wearing Yids in Williamsburg, Brooklyn love it.

    I think it was John Kasich who would never stop referring to his middle-class
    roots by telling everyone that he was the son of a mailman. Then, of course,
    there was Ubangi and Felonia von Pantsuit who pandered to black voters
    by trying to speak Ebonics to people they were addressing at campaign events.
    (Both came from wealthy white families) When listening to the audio clips,
    I couldn’t stop laughing. I thought I was listening to a cheap knockoff of
    Amos and Andy. I expected one of them would take a knee and start
    singing Mammy. Socialists and Democrats get away with this bullshit
    because nobody would ever call them on it!

  3. As bad as Bruce Springsteen (ptu!) claiming to be middle class.
